passengers on board a singapore airlines flight this morning. this was the scene. check it out. just moments after the boeing 777 made an emergency landing in singapore. flames engulfed the aircraft's right wing after one of the engines caught fire. the airline says the plane carrying 222 passengers and 19 crew to milan turned back about two hours into the flight due to an engine oil warning message. passengers were kept on that plane while emergency crews doused it with water and foam. fortunately there were no injuries. the cause is still being investigated. ten people were injured, at least six of them stabbed in clashes with a white nationalist group. the traditionalist workers party scheduled a protest outside the california state capitol. that led to clashes with a larger group of counterprotesters. reporter mike lowry from our nbc affiliate in california has the details. >> reporter: a raucous rally at the state capitol. turned bloody as more than 100 protesters here started throwing
2:02 am
projectiles at the building. the protesters smashed the glass and shouted vulgarities at a group that had a permit to be here. two men were attacked by the protesters, throwing pieces of concrete, and several people were hospitalized with stab wounds. we found this knife left behind on the south steps of the capitol. the injured are believed to be members of the traditionalist workers party, a group that describes itself as committed to finding discrimination against whites. police call it a white supremacist group, also injured today, this protester who came here from the bay area. >> we shut down the nazis and in the process of that, you know, they attacked us, but they were not successful doing that on balance overall. >> reporter: the protesters are part of an anti-fascist group many of them wearing bandannas to cover their faces became even more agitated. assaulting this reporter and his photographer on the capitol grounds. making it clear they wanted no cameras to document their strukz at the capitol. officials say a gun was

found at the scene and turned in to police but no gunshots were reportedly fired and there is no word if any arrests were made. donald trump is dropping his hillary clinton rises. a new "washington post"/abc news survey now has clinton with a double digit lead over trump 51% to 39%. and our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows trump faring just a bit better. 46% of registered voters backing clinton versus 41% supporting trump. now clinton will spend the day in ohio, campaigning alongside rumors vp candidate massachusetts senator elizabeth warren for the first time. they're expected to go after trump on everything from his business record to his temperament. this weekend saw a dramatic shift in tone from trump. while talking to reporters on tour of his scotland golf resort, trump told bloomberg news he wouldn't characterize his immigration policies as including mass deportation, saying, quote, president obama has mass deported vast numbers of people. the most ever, and it's never
2:04 am
reported. i think people are going to find that i have not only the best policies, but i will have the biggest heart of anybody. when pressed on whether he would issue mass deportations trump answered no, i would not call it mass deportations. and on his proposed muslim ban trump said it would not be a blanket one saying, quote, i want terrorists out. i want people that had bad thoughts out. i would limit specific terrorist countries and we know who those terrorist countries are. also new longtime conservative voice george will announced that he has dropped the gop. speaking at a federalist society event he said trump pushed him over the edge leading him to change his party registration to unaffiliated. he told the crowd this is not my party. that came as hank paulson, treasury secretary under george w. bush and a former goldman sachs ceo endorsed hillary clinton on friday. pending an op-ed in "the washington post," paulson said republicans should put the country before the party. and even senate majority leader
2:05 am
mitch mcconnell isn't fully on trump's side. he declined to say whether trump is even qualified to be president. meanwhile hillary clinton took issue with trump for hailing the unprecedented brexit vote. >> good afternoon, everyone. bombastic comments in turbulent times can actually cause more turbulence. and who put the interests of the american people ahead of their personal business interests. no one should be confused about america's commitment to europe. not an autocrat in the kremlin, not a presidential candidate on a scottish golf course. >> clinton also released new ads slamming trump for his brexit response after he suggested friday that the market volatility caused by the brexit vote would make his business thrive. here's what trump told reporters friday. >> what i like is that i love to see people take their country back. so when the pound goes down,
2:06 am
more people are coming to turnbury, frankly. and the pound has gone down, and let's see what the impact of that has. >> and last night john oliver had his chance to sink in to that historic vote. >> at least one person who voted to leave seems to have buyer's remorse. >> i was -- about the results even though i voted to leave, this morning i woke up and the reality did actually hit me. but i had the opportunity to vote again, it would be to stay. >> well, well, you're actually in luck, because it turns out incredibly, there is going to be another vote coming up. and it's happening one week -- of course there isn't. that was the [ bleep ] vote. it wasn't a practice vote! that was it! >> well, today, secretary of state john kerry will become the first senior u.s. official to visit london and brussels since the referendum. at least 25 people have died

2:08 am
at tlooes 250 homes and businesses have been destroyed. officials say the least is now 40% contained. that's a little bit of good news. they hope to have it completely contained by thursday. for the millions who gathered for gay pride parades across the weekend, this year's celebrations meant something more. memory of the orlando massacre loomed large over events across the nation. in new york, victims of the pulse nightclub shooting were remembered with a moment of silence and 49 flags. while marchers in san francisco honored them with signs. but amidst the somber tone, pride prevailed with a number of marriage proposals, notably officers from new york to london proudly popping the question while flanked by their fellow officers. pope francis is making waves with another unscripted response. speaking with reporters, while flying home from armenia, the pontiff said that christians and the roman catholic church should apologize to gay people for the way they have treated them. he also said the church should
2:09 am
ask for forgiveness for the way it has treated women, and for turning a blind eye to child labor. let's get down to business on this monday with cnbc's landon dowdy. good morning. >> good monday morning. there could be more pain today for the financial markets as investors are still trying to figure out the impact of the uk's vote to leave the european union. it's a mixed picture today for global markets. japan rebounding partially from friday's 8% loss. >> that's good news. >> it is. europe is right across the board down about 1% with bank and financial stocks leading the decline. wall street, it is poised to open lower tacking on to friday's sharp losses. the dow had the 8th biggest point drop in its history. all told, s&p global says that global markets lost nearly 2.1 trillion dollars in value friday -- >> that's incredible. >> -- just one day the largest drop on record. stocks may be falling but many so-called safe haven investments could benefit in the short-term. investors are seeking safety in

so far. but much more needs to be done. meanwhile, the never trump movement aimed at ousting him at the republican national convention is planning a convention for a fight and they have hired staff. they'll soon open up a command center in cleveland and will roll out ads aimed at getting delegates to drop trump in key states over the next week. the wife of maine governor paul lepage has a new summer gig, waiting tables at a local restaurant. her goal? to buy a new suv. ann la page is working part time as a waitress three days a week at lunch time to save enough money to purchase her new car. the governor said she also took the job to supplement his $70,000 salary, which is the lowest of any u.s. governor. meanwhile, governor andrew cuomo of new york will ride alongside music icon billy joel in a statewide motorcycle ride today. it's an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer before governor cuomo signs legislation that expands access to screenings for the disease. his girlfriend a food network

star and cancer survivor sandra lee will also join the ride. that is your morning dish of "scrambled politics." all right. raul reyes joins us in studio. he is an attorney and an nbcnews.come contributor. thanks for getting up early with us. >> good morning. >> so more people as we've just heard have been leaving the republican party. we're talking about conservative voice george will. hank paulson former freshsy secretary under george w. bush. could trump be in for a rude awakening at this convention? >> sure. the big question right now is you know the convention is weeks away. who is going to be there all of those nights? because you have people like mitt romney they say they're not going. none of the bush family is planning on attending. he's insulted some leading people who could be there like susana martinez, nikki haley, they won't be there. marco rubio, john kasich, so the list goes on and on. it leaves donald trump with a pretty shallow pool unless donald trump plans on being there himself center stage at the podium every night which could be a possibility. >> the never trump movement is setting up shop.
2:22 am
>> right. he has a real lack of surrogates. right now the only people i could think who would be there very enthusiastically would be say chris christie. maybe the governor of maine. and actually i believe marco rubio said he would speak but not necessarily endorsement but he would be willing to speak. so, he has a lot of space to fill. >> speaking of talking and talking a lot over the weekend trump appeared to be walking back on his stance on deportations, his ban on muslims. now us thfs an attempt to find some common ground within the party to keep people from hitting the exit doors? >> it looks like it might be his attempt to be walking things back. the key word here is he appears to be walking back some of his earlier statements. because when he said we're not going to do mass deportations. he said no mass deportations. which that has been a key part of his whole campaign platform. then he did said we're not going to do mass deportations but we are going to get rid of a lot of bad guys. they've got to go. so in a way it seems like a little, you know, semantics game here. with the potential ban of muslims what he said was not a
2:23 am
ban on muslims over this weekend he said we'll put a ban on people from muslim terrorist countries. >> right. >> which potentially could mean more people because that encompasses say every country from saudi arabia to pakistan, to indonesia, or even countries in europe. so when you -- >> -- find -- >> it could actually be more severe than his original statements. >> very quickly, hillary clinton is campaigning with senator elizabeth warren today. is this a way of testing the waters to see if maybe supporters would like to see her as a vp? >> sure. certainly that progressive base would love to see elizabeth warren. she's a bridge to the bernie sanders coalition. she's one of the most influential people in the democratic party right now. maybe it's an attempt to see what the personal chemistry is. they don't have a lot of personal history together. we shall see as the veepstakes move on. >> all right, raul, thanks so much. >> thank you. >> just ahead, a stunner at the olympic qualifiers as a favorite fails to make the cut. and the victims of the boston
